7 most spacious small cars in India
The Jazz is the only car in the premium hatchback segment that comes exclusively with a petrol engine and the three variants of this car cost anywhere between Rs 6-6.48 lakh. The Jazz has exterior dimensions which are basically mid table. Despite this, the Honda comes up trumps on two counts, namely boot space and head room. The leg room also features near the top of the table, but the only factor where the Jazz loses out is lateral seat width, which is the lowest among these seven cars.
The last car to feature on this list is Hyundai’s flagship i20 hatchback. Its price ranges between Rs 4.76 and Rs 7.79 lakh, and comes in petrol and diesel. Quite absurdly, despite having the greatest wheelbase among all the cars that feature on this list at 2,525mm, the i20 also has the least legroom at a minimum of 560mm and a maximum of 780mm. It has a sizeable boot space and head room, joint second highest in terms of the latter. It also has the second highest lateral seat width a fact that is reflected in its exterior width statistic (1,710mm) which is the highest among the list.
Clearly, each car comes with its share of pros and cons, but all seven cars listed above have proven to be the relative best among the hatchbacks in the market. So if you’re a professional basketball player or pack heavy for your holidays, the Jazz might be a suitable purchase, or if you’re generously built, then the Vista may just be the ideal car for you. Regardless of your preference though, one thing is apparent – when it comes to cars, size really does matter!
